The Desktop Groups Layer

Virtual desktop groups consist of virtual desktops that are pooled, pre-assigned, or assigned on first use. Each group can contain only one type of desktop. These virtual desktops can run on PCs, blades, or virtual machines (VMs) provided through a virtualization infrastructure.

This layer focuses on the performance of the desktop groups managed by a DDC, and reports the availability, usage, and the hosting infrastructure of the desktops within each group.
